New DEW-SCENTED announce new album title and unveil artwork; first online teaser video launched!

April 30th, 2012

Hey guys!

Just as promised the other day, we can now reveal that the new DEW-SCENTED album will be entitled “Icarus” and also present you the stunning artwork designed by Björn Goosses / Killustrations ( Check it out here:


The album’s main theme could be described a modern-times, very apocalyptic adaptation of elements of the “Icarus” myth, using a lot of its symbolism while interlinking with several other personal or observant subjects, in true DEW-SCENTED fashion. Without being close to a ‘concept album’, “Icarus” has a pretty coherent lyrical flow and that helps to enhance and also to intentionally enlarge the atmosphere and vibe created by the music.

Here is a first sneak peak video teaser from the studio:

“Icarus” was recorded at Soundlodge Studio ( with Jörg Uken (God Dethroned, Suicidal Angels, Nightfall, etc.) as producer and will be released by late July 2012 via Metal Blade Records in Europe and Prosthetic Records in North America.

New DEW-SCENTED album recordings finished; Release scheduled for late July! New tourdates!

April 23rd, 2012

Hey Thrashers!

Good things are falling into place at last again…

DEW-SCENTED have just finished studio recordings for a new album! We once again recorded at Soundlodge Studio ( in the deepest heart of Northern Germany with Jörg Uken (God Dethroned, Suicidal Angels, Nightfall, etc.) as producer. We have worked with Jörg already on “Incinerate” for the recordings and then on the previous album “Invocation” for recordings and mix. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to team up with him again and the time we worked on the new music together in his halls pretty much went flying by! The best part however is: The final mix turned out really, really HEAVY, so much we can tell you already!!! Some songtitles off the new album are: “Sworn To Obey”, “Reawakening”, “Storm Within” and “Gleaming Like Silver”.

The new album will be released by late July 2012 via our good partners Metal Blade Records in Europe and Prosthetic Records in North America. The artwork was once again created by our buddie Björn Goosses / Killustrations (, who we have actually partnered with since 2003’s “Impact” release, so it’s been almost a full decade! Wow! The new album’s artwork looks totally stunning and we can’t wait to share it with all of you soon! We are right now finishing off the work on the layouts and just did a promo photo session this past weekend, so all things are rolling forwards…

We also have some brief update as far as live-shows: Unfortunately we were forced to cancel our appearance at Chronical Moshers open air festival on June 9th due to logistical complications on our end. We would like to apologize to the good people at CMOA / Metalclub Reichenbach. We were truly looking forward to playing their Anniversary event, but it simply wasn’t meant to be! Hope we can make up for it in the future!?! Deranged from Sweden are replacing us there, so make sure to support them by attending and joining the party! Find more details here:
